The underappreciated, ovedooked, short, squealing underclassmen. They don't have much to offer, 
but their oversized backpacks and swarming tendencies make them a staple in any gridlocked hallway.

Despite heavy workloads, skinny lockers , noisy construction, and the 
regular stresses we encountered this year, seniors didn't forget how to 
have a good time. From concerts to parties to driving aimlessly with 
our friends, we've made some great memories this past year.

Juniorg^^^ of 2008 

Junior year means lots of great things. It means bleacher 
painting, formal dances like the semi-formal and prom. It means 
that you don't necessarily have to ride the bus, or get dropped off by 
mommy and daddy because maybe you, or one of your friends, got 
a drivers licence. It means that you get to eat in a better cafeteria, 
and it means that you can finally take more some more interesting 
tnajor classes like psychology and sociology. It also, however, 
means more work. It means more responsibility. It means that 
there is only one year to go before we have to leave the friendly 
:onfines of the high school. 




Face painters. Always there to support fellow 
atheletes, juniors Josh Kipp and Tim Cederberg 
go all out when it comes to game day. 



Spin doctor. The seniors finished the 
bat-spin contest before the other classes, 
but were disqualified lor cheating, 
allowing Chris Haynes and the rest of 
his team to finsh first.

Sophomores, 

200" 

Sophomore year is a bit like being the middle child in a family. 
We aren't the youngest. We aren't the oldest. We are talented, but 
have a long way to go before we reach our full potential. This usually 
leaves our actors with smaller roles in the musical, our athletes with 
more time on junior varsity teams than varsity, and we still have tons 
to learn in the classroom. While sophomore year does include many 
things that make it difficult like MCAS and more schoolwork, there are 
many things that take the pressure off all of that work. Sophomore year 

I means things like friends getting their learners permits, going to sweet 
sixteen parties and being used to the school and the people in it. Best 
of all, sophomore year means that you aren't a freshman anymore! 




Game day. Varsity ticid hockey players 
Cora Benlly and Kelsey Hartwcll sport 
matching smiles, and uniromis, before 
their game v ersus Acton-Boxboro. 



Street fight. Sophmore strongmen Joe 
Tiano. Ryan Carter, Dave Micu, and 
Brendan Ciibson dressed up for their 
football psyche. 





At Bedord Day there are those who 
work, and those who play. J. P. Driscoll 
and Eric Johnson choose the latter. 



Bad hair day. But this young Bedford 
resident actually paid Diana Darkazalli, 
and the sophomore class, to have his hair 
colored as part of their fund raiser.

Freshman 



of 2010 



"The class of 2010," says a freshman with despair in her voice. 
"That is like... a million years away." Although it may seem like 
that for some freshmen, it will be here before they know we know it. 
While freshmen year means more work, seventy minute class blocks, 
and being pushed around in the halls by huge upperclassmen, it also 
means breaking away form all those rules that students that attended 
John Glenn Middle School had to follow. Now we can wear hats to 
school, we have break, and we get out twenty minutes earlier. It also 
means that we get to attend a school that has students that have lived 
all over the world, because of the influx of students that we get form 
Hanscom Air Force Base. Cheer up freshmen. It's not a million years 
away... only three. 




Out in the open. When the weather is 
nice Brian Rose, Gabby Bard, and A.J. 
Grabbertin get to have art class w ith Ms. 
Whitney outside. 



Balancing act. Being in the high school 
means that Justin Brooks has to keep a much 
busier schedule. He is still an athlete, but now 
he has much more on his mind.

Many consider football to be the ultimate 
team sport. For a single play to be successful, 
it requires that all eleven players do precisely 
what they are assigned to do. That, combined 
with the physical demands and length of the 
season, make it incredibly tough. Because 
of this, all the Buccaneers that complete 
the season have something to be extremely 
proud of 

When the season started the team had a goal 
to "Take state..." While that didn't happen, 
there were many moments that made this 



Huddle up. Junior linebacker Kegan Keller ('89) calls the defeasive 
set for seniors Doug Howie (37), T.J. Paganetti (60), Tony D'Alleva 
(57), and Antoine King (22) during their game versus Bishop 
Fenwick. 



season a memorable one: three days in New 
Hampshire at camp, crushing Boston Latin 47- 
6, the dominating shutout of Newton South, 
and the come-from-behind win at Westford 
Academy. 

In the end five seniors were Dual County 
League all-stars, many underclassmen got 
valuable playing time, and the team was, once 
again, competitive in one of the toughest 
football leagues in the state.

The old switcheroo. While the team warmed up for their game 
with Belmont, coaches hung the new black shirts on the players 
lockers. When the players were done warming up, they changed, 
then took on Belmont.

Record breaker! On his way to winning a spot on the Boston Globe 
All-Scholaitic team, and the All-State team fan honor that Ls reserved 
for only 22 players in the state) senior Wtxxly Carter (33 ) broke the 
school record for touchdowns in a single season. 



It's good. Driving kicks through the uprights (below) has become 
second nature to senior Jon Merlo (26). In only his second year as a 
kicker Jon, and holder Woody Carter (33), have become one of the 
most consistent tandems in the league. 




Down blocking. Senior center Chris Mercuric (52) blocks dovn 
on the n(xse tackle which opes up a running lane for scnwr Scott 
Steed (20).

To the point. 

Head coach Dave Boschetto gives direction to striker Jarred Cot 
Boschetto has been the head coach of varsity soccer for 2 
He preaches hard work and commitment above all other 
of the game. 



The Bedford Boys Varsity soccer team 
capped off its most successful season in recent memory 
by making it to the quaner-finals of the Division II 
North State Tournament, only to lose to Dracut in 
penalty kicks. The team played through injur\' and 
sickness to a 7-7-4 record overall, clinching fifth place 
in the Dual County League. This was also enough to 
reach the state tournament, where, after everyone 
shaved their heads into mohawks, Bedford was able 
to knock off O'Briant high school 2-0 and Burke High 
School, the number two seed and Boston champion, 
3-2. 

Almost every player on this year's team had 
also been on varsity last year, when the young team 



struggled to a 1-12-5 record. However, with one year 
of experience under everyone's belts, they had the skill 
and work ethic to beat any opponent. 

Much of the year's success can be attributed 
to the coaching duo of Dave Boschetto and Jim Byrnes, 
who, by their confidence and investment in the team 
were able to inspire the players to outwork any 
challenger. By the end of the season, everj'one had 
learned that even the toughest of foes could be beaten 
if they played "hard, smart, and together."

Quick Feet 

Senior Captain Devon Ryan is known to out muscle oppenents. He 
has been playing soccer for 12 years. He has been on varsiy soccer 
team since 10th grade. 



Looking Ahead 

Below: Varsity Head Coach Dave Boschetto and Senior Neil 
Tembulkar look forward to a successful season as they win their 
way to a spot in the State Tournament. 




Eyes on the prize.

Dodge Ball. This season senior Alisha Silverstrone (Below) was a 
to oui manuver many of her opponents this season, including i 
Weston player, on her way to becoming a DCL all-star. 



This season completed coach Dave 
Wilson's third season as head coach of 
the girls soccer team. The Lady Bucs, 
who finished the season with a record of 
11-8-2, were seeded tenth in the MIAA 
state tournament. But, true to form, the 
Bucs, who had a first round match up with 
seventh-seeded Mount Alvemia, were 
able to defeat the all-girls school 4-1, on 
the road in Newton. During that game 
Georgia O'Rourke, Katie Whallon, Clair 



Criniti, and Courtney O'Connor all scored 
goals. "This balance was typical of the 
team," stated coach Wilson, "I am very 
proud of what they accomplished." 

The team will lose eight seniors this 
season, inculding DCL all-stars Courtney 
O'Connor and Alisha Silverstrone but 
will return fourteen for the next, which 
will provide a strong nucleus. 




Top Row:Kristen Cangiano, Olga Chambers Maher, Nicole Hickox,

Giving it the boot. Another player that will be sorely missed by next 
year's team is Amanda Pike . 




72 




73 



Fast fonvard. This season was forward Charline Asp's (below) third, 
and although the statistics might not show it, she was one of the 
Bucs most effective offensive forces. 



It isn't "spin control" to say 
that this season's field hockey team 
was successful. The team was able 
to accomplish several things that will 
surely help them in the future. They 
were able to shut out Newton South, a 
Dual county league rival, which showed 
that they can be successful in their 



league. They also almost upset 
perennial league powerhouse Lincoln- 
Sudburv', though they did lose 2-3. 

The team does have a bright future. 
New coach Ms. Kirkpatrick will help 
long-time coach Ms.Barton develop a 
stronggroupofunderclassmenthatwill 
tr\^ to replace a tough senior class.

Kuhn; Bottom Row: Sarah Jaffer, Kaylyn Klatt, Lindsey Bernardo, 
Lisa Gocht, Katie 'Vi'ilklns 



Getting down. Senior captain Sarah Jaffer was, seemingly, under 
constant assault from shots by the opposing team. Fonunatelv 
for the Lady Bucs she turned away many shots during what was a 
strong season for her. 



74 




Reaching in. As one of the team captains, senior Kaylynn 
Klatt's play at center-mid, as well as her leadership were 
crucial for the Bucs. 



Roil with me. Another loss for the Bucs next season 
will be senior Katie Southard's (below) solid defense. 
Against Acton-Boxborough the team found themselves 
on defense a lot, and Katie's dogged defense was key. 




Stick it to her. Multi-lalented sophomore Katilm Mohen 
(abo\ e) w as as strong on the field hockey field as she was 
on the stage as an actor. 



Fast lane. Only a sophomore, mid-wing .•\llison Hagar 
was one of several impressive underclassmen \\ ho made 
a significant contribution this season. 



75 



The Bedford Volleyball Team had a great 
season. The Bucs came out strong with three straight 
wins at the beginning of the season. The team hit a 
rough patch mid-season, but then came out on top 
by finishing off the regular season by beating Wayland 
to qualify for the state tournament. 

The Volleybucs made Bedford High School 
Volleyball history by making it to the quater-finals of the 
state tournament. The Bucs defeated Madison Park in 
three games making it farther in the tournament than 
any previous season. The Bucs fought hard in 



their next match, but lost to the future league 
champion Arlingon Catholic team. The giris played 
their hardest and left everything on the court. 

The fall 2006 season was incredible. The 
team would like to thank Coach Serbus and all of the 
super fans for all of their suppon. This season the 
Volleybucs gave it their all and "refused to lose". 



Ready, willing, and able. Senior Sleph Miller-Hen 
was one of the reasons that the team made it to the s 
tournament.

must be "on the same page" Here Jen Tate, Jenna 
Mitchell, and Jackie Melton discuss the upcoming 
play. 




76 




Hold the line. Here Jackie Melton and Lauren Sarson 
show why the team's defense was so formidible. 



Below: Having junior Lindsay McGrory on the team 
again this season was key, and having her next year 
will help the Bucs stay in contention for the division 
three playoffs. 




Above: Seniorjenna Mitchell is one of the main reasons 
the team was able to make the state tournament this 
year. 



Coach Serbus is passionate about the game and is sure 
to motiN'ate the girls to play their best.

At this season's Dual County meet, 
the team was only able to finish eighth 
but, considering the size of some of the 
schools that they had to run against, 
coach Solomon was, "quite pleased 
with the way my kids ran." 

At the meet Alex Bradford was our 
top runner. He was able to finish the 
3.1 mile course at Great Brook Farm 
in Carlisle in 18:51. JeffSuddy, 



Chris Donovan, Jarred Heyl, G.J. 
Baratta and Dell Bennett also ran well 
for the Bucs. Michelle Richter was 
the top finisher for the girls, finishing 
in 24:15 just edging out Jennifer 
Amdt who finshed four places behind 
her. Melody Morris, Briana Lewis, 
Katie Norregaard, Aimee Young and 
Samantha Christen also performed 
well for the Bucs at the meet.

The Fall Cheerleading team overcame many obstacles 
during the 2006 season. Coach Billioun brought the 
team to a brand new level. At the Dual County 
League meet, the team placed first in their division and 
second in the league, securing a bid to the regional 
finals. Their victor}' earned respect from students 
and facultv' alike. Senior captains April Wilson, Blair 
Pekala, and Cat Iwanchuk mentored the younger. 
le.ss experienced, team members. Other senior 
cheerleaders Sarah Jones, Ivana Serret, Janine King, 
and manager .\llison Gramolini also played pivotal 
roles in keeping the underclassmen 



focused. Great job on an outstanding season and 
remember to "KNUCK IF YOU BUG" or even better 
jUST DO IT"!

Senior guard Devon Ryan 
(below center) is known for 
deadly three-point shooting. 




Despite beginning the 
season with a 1-5 record, 
the boys basketball team 
battled back to finish the 
season 11-9. The team 
entered the state tourna- 
ment as the tenth seed, 
but easily ripped through 
their first-round opponent 
North Reading 65-40. The 
team's second round win 
was amazing, and in- 
cluded a 24 point second- 
half comeback. The third 
round game was another 
blowout for the team over 
Wilmington. The season 
ended with a loss to Wa- 
tertown at the Tsongas 
Arena in Lowell in the 
North Section Finals. 

The successful season, 
coach Byrnes said, will 
"stay with the players for a 
lifetime. The five seniors 
never quit. Every single 
day in practice they set the 
tone. If you don't have 
those kids with character, 
you don't get here. That's 
the secret of the turn- 
around." 

With a strong group of 
returning underchissmen, 
next season should be 
just as memorable for the 
Bucs, and their fans.

strone (right) was a large part of what

Junior Allison Morse's (left) scoring 
ability was an important element of the 
Bucs attacking offense. 

Point guard Sarah Caliri (below), who 
last year made the varsity squad as a 
freshmen, was troubled by a nagging 
knee injury this season, but will surely 
add much needed punch in '08. 




This season the girls bas- 
ketball team earned a 
fourth straight trip to the 
state tournament. The 
team finished the season 
10-10 in the extremely 
competitive Dual County 
League. The girls entered 
the tournament as the elev- 
enth seed, but was stopped 
by a powerful Ipswich 
squad in the first round. 

The team will return a 
strong core of players for 
next year. The Buccaneers 
had only one senior this 
year, Alisha Silverstrone, 
who missed the final four 
games of the season with 
an ankle injury.

This year's winter track 
team sprinted, jogged,

the incredibly competi- 
tive Dual County League. 
While they competed 
against teams that were 
often twice their size, the 
Bucs were able to put up 
some impressive individual 
numbers. Mike Barba- 
cano, the Buccaneers top 
preformer, placed third 
by clearing 5 ' 11 " in the 
high jump. In the 55 me- 
ter dash, Scott Steed fin- 
ished seventh with a time 
of 7 seconds flat. Junior 
Hope Bigda-Peyton placed 
fourth, jumping 16'6" in 
the long jump.

This season the ice hock- 
ey team skated, checked

through another tough 
Merrimack Valley/Dual 
County League sched- 
ule. At the end of it all, 
coach of the year winner 
Coach Marifione, and 
the rest of the team, had 
to say goodbye to the 
many seniors, including 
as all-stars D.J. Cohen, 
Criag Larsen and Pat- 
rick O'Brien. The Bucs 
return a strong core of 
young players for next 
season, and may be skat- 
ing in a new home rink.

While the loss of seniors like Ashley 
Theodore (left) will hurt the team in 
competition next season, there are 
plenty of freshmen, like Matt Tiano 
(below), that will be sure to help the 
team recover. 




The boys and girls

Bay West's Omega

One of the school's 
most consistently suc- 
cessful, and yet some- 
how underappreciated, 
teams is our rifle team. 
At the time of printing, 
the team had only two 
losses, and was on its 
way to another league ti- 
tle. The team also placed 
first in Region One of the 
American Legion nation- 
al championships. There 
the team scored 1,988 
points to lead a field of 
teams from Massachu- 
setts and New Hamp- 
shire. Dusty Smith was 
the individual champion 
in Region One scoring 
520 points which quali- 
fied her for the national 
championship round.

name escapes me. . . Paulies, or Hughleys, or something. They're 
your typical lanky, conscientious types. You know the ones I'm 
talking about. Then there's that other one, bookish, chelonian . . .we 
worked on some kind of historical carnival together, he and I and 
some other giri, who did most of the work ... I was producing 
Haircut lOO's reunion album at the time and didn't have the chance

spent a few late evenings with, dining at fast food restaurants while 
I was working on ghostwriting Sue Grafton's latest novel (T Is For

them for medicaments. Then there was that Italian boy, the one 
who liked cars and Mad TV. . . I'd like to thank him for getting me 
into shape before my prizefight with Bob Saget on HBO (thanks to 
Darude for the montage music). Thank you to that girl, the pretty 
one, we got coffee once. That was great, I'd never had coffee, it 
tastes like chalk (thanks Doug Funnie). An extended thanks to the 
good members of the social studies department (they know who 
they are), that English teacher that doled out pastries and sound 
advice, that curiy-haired fellow who turns something as simple as a 
request for a pencil into a 30-minute conversation, and that girl that

"Fleecv Fleece" - Ana 



"RING RAVE!"- Tony D. 

First I want to thank my parents. I love you both. . . Mom, you 
are always there when I need you, you have never missed a single 
game, track, or cross country meet, and 1 know 1 can count on you 
to always be there in the stands. And Dad I don't think that I would 
be where I am today if it wasn't for you. Especially in the vehicle 
aspect, 1 don't think there's anyone else who in their right mind 
would allow a high school teenager to have three cars in a span 
of 2 years. From a Maxima, to a Mazda, to a Cadillac. Numerous 
car shows since the day I left the hospital for the first time. Best in 
show, and best in class were frequent awards that you and I won 
every other weekend. 

The greatest pan of high school has to be the times you have spent 
with your friends. From the 8ih grade Washington D C. Trip to trips 
to "-11, and continuous summer nights by the pool at my house. 
Doug I have known you longer than most people and we have had 
some awesome times, especially the ones in the go-can. Oh your 
basement = some awesome times. Feno, the van was amazing, that 
provided transportation for about 1 5 kids at a time . . . clutch! Jacob, 
man we have sure gotten into some trouble, stupid moves in our 
matching Maximas! Covering for each other whenever we needed 
it, and just being there for each other, thanks Jake, I appreciate 
it Jeremy, and Anthony the three of us in elementary school 
were inseparable! Everyone that I can always count on to make me 
laugh, Bobby, Machado, Larsen, Wyatt, Guanci and Jarvis. Evenone 
on the football team, to be specific: Jeff. Scott, Woody, Antoine, 
Jon, T.J., Tony, -FaTzZ-, Ferro. Doug, and Anthony we have gone 
through soo much, 3 years of double sessions, camp in New Hamp- 
shire, 123 degree days in the weight room all summer, leadership 
training, 6 am. Saturday morning running in the freezing cold. . . 
thanks a ton all of you! Ana I don't know where to stan, ever since 
indoor track my sophomore year I knew I wanted to be with you 
The limo, Walden Pond, Fire Island, and soo many more places and 
things we have done over these 2 + years. You are always there 
to listen to me when 1 need to talk, guiding me between right and 
wrong, 1 have learned so much from you. High school never would 
have been the same without vou!

^elp with m\ math courses, just as I did throughout high schcwl. 



I remember those days when you would spend entire afternoons 
tn ing to teach me basic algebra. I gue.ss it paid off after all. Mom, 
what would I have done without you? Eighteen years of arguing, 
shopping, anti talking about anything. You always helped me when 
I needed guidance, an always treated me with respect. You're 
the best. Marcos, my dear brother I think you are awesome, no 
matter what anyone says about you! Megan, I never told you this, 
but I am very jealous of your smartness. Neha, wow three years 
and you were always a great friend. There are so many jokes and 
funny times, like that day in gym, when the volleyball knocked your 
glasses off your face. Oh, remember physics. . . OMEGA! Speaking 
of physics. Sheila, I still have no idea. Ashley, I just hope you never 
go down south ... for their sake. You made Health, CPR, and Psych 
very interesting. Mitchell, you are a great person and I hope you fi- 
nally learn to roll your R's. Mark, we were the new kids. I will never 
forget the eariy days when we would hang out in the morning with 
Kacee. I am still waiting for her to visit! Lisa, I will forever remember 
your tongue comment. You made school bearable. Congrats '07, 
we are tlone!

Here's to everyone and everything that made high school 
more than just four years in an unaccrediietl buikling. Most 
importantly I would like to thank my parents for consistent and 
unrelenting support. To Dad, for all those infijriating mind puzzles, 
spontaneous science lessons, and hours of math help to keep me 
on my toes. To Mom, for making a wholehearted effort to keep me 
normal. Sometimes there's nothing you can do. Next is my sister, 
Emily. Thanks for putting up with me, and thanks for being a great 
sister. I'd like to thank those teachers that made a special impact 
on me: Mr. Venkatesh for showing me what it's like to be truly 
frightened of a test. To Mr. Huff, for proving that mathematics isn't 
all fire and brymstone. To Doctor Haswell, thanks for all the help, 
encouragment, stories, and late-night pizza. Next I'd like to thank 
eveo'one on the soccer team - we had a great run. Special thanks 
to coach Boschetto for three great varsity years, you watched me 
mature from a scared sophomore to a senior member of a suc- 
cessful team. Finally, and arguably of the most importance (behind 
my family), I'd like to thank those few friends who really made an 
impact. Here's to Sam Owen, friend from the beginning, and best 
by far. Wherever you go, if you give others the friendship you gave 
me, you will always be happy. Thanks to Luke Davis for playing 
long hours of soccer with me in middle .school and driving me all 
over creation for our club teams. A very special thanks to the Fonda 
group - Andy McGavern, Ben Johnston, and Jay .Mtschuler. That 
was an experience, to say the least. Oh yeah, and Neil. My bad.

Mom and Dad, you guys have always Ijeen there for me and never 
let me down. I know that at times we have had our disagreements 
and I'm sorr\' for this. Tlianks so much for being so supportive 
and always having my back. 1 love you guys and hope that I can 
continue to make you proud. Peter, I know that I have beat \t)u 
up many times and I'm sorry, it's what older brothers do, and you 
know that it only makes you stronger anyway. You have been an 
awe.some brother throughout the years. It's been nice having you 
around for those days w hen there's just nothing to do. As long is 
\'our around life is not dull, anti as this is m\ last year in schtxil I 
hope you continue my legacy anti become the cni/y one in your 
group of friends, inspiring for new ideas such as "donutting ". 
Thanks for being a gtxxi brother and I look forward to what's in 



store for the rest of our lives. Anastasia, you are possibly the cool- 
est five year old that I know. The things that you say are hilarious 
and most of the time you don't even mean it. It's nice being able 
to ask someone how my hair l(X)ks and being able to get an honest 
opinion. Your still young and have much to go through in life and 
1 11 always be around to help out. Niko. what can 1 say? You are 
hilarious. The things you do make no sense and I love you for it. I 
think that you have some major potential to be more destructive 
than I was, and with some proper guidance I can get you in the 
right path. George, your like another brother to me. We have had 
many good times either t(K)ling (jn Peter or just the three of us 
screwing around. As I go I offer this as advice to you, stop buying 
so many shoes. Neil, first I'd like to say that you're the best Indian 
a boy could ask for and Kumar has nothing on you. With that out 
of the way I'm glad that we've been friends throughout the years. 
It's nice to have someone who is equally devious in their thinking 
and together we have created some good times. Stay in touch 
buddy and remember to lay off the doritos in college. Cory you've 
been an awesome friend and I have to thank you for allowing me 
to practically live in your house at times. We have many memories 
and I hope they don 't end any time soon. Nick, thanks for cleaning 
up after Cor\' and Neil because there was no way I would have. 
Thanks for always calling me first when you had giris over too, even^ 
if it never really worked out like we planned. David, 12 cm. Sorry 
couldn't resist. It's been nice having someone around to be a nerd 
with. Bill thanks for being my first Bedford friend, we had some 
rockin times in our youth. Taec, I don't know where you are but 
you're the goofiest kid I know GckkJ luck with your claim to fame. 
Luke, we have had .some sweet adventures into Ranheon and iLs 
been nice having someone adventurous around. Kevin, your hou,se 
is awesome for Clementine wars and just hanging out. You're a 
cool kid, hopefully you wont stray as far as your thinking when It 
comes to college. Dan thanks for having golf balls for us to launch, 
and following me in my crazy ideas. Dave, that smtwihie war was 
priceless. Alex im sorry for ruining your drive way multiple times. 
Christine, you will get tlonutted. 1 promise this. Eliza, im pretrv' 
sure you owe me some twizzlers. Devon, thanks for being my wing- 
man at prom last year, hopefully well be able to follow up this year. 
Brett, thanks for filling in while your brother w-as out dying. Steve, 
your amazing at gladiator ball Dunlea thanks for running in that 4

TONY GONG 

Thank you, Mr. Btxschetto, for giving me an A on this essay: 
The Turner Thesis accurately predicted the Vl'i-stem fnintier's vust 
influence on .\nierican culture anil v-alues The shaping of .\nicncan 
values can be observed in two major legacies of the Wt^t works of 
popular media and the development of women's suffrage Despite 
arguments that view Turner's vision as Inaccurate, the spread of 
Western v-,ilues is still evident in .\merica iixlav 
Themes and values of the Vl est reflecteil in popular medu show the 
frontier's influence on .^nienran values In the film l'nfot}{ivvn, one 
of the final .scenes is Vl ill .Munny walking confidently into a sakxm 
and shix)ting down several armed individuals single-hamlcvUy This 
.scene strongly reflects the idea of individualism bv utilizing the 
"lone gunman" icon It is clt-ar that this icon has aLvi been inaxpo- 
rateti into .Xnierican |X)litics. such as with the .Viiencan war on Iraq. 
The choice to invaile Iraq w hile facing oppositHMi of tnher countries

clearly illustrates the American emphasis on independent deci- 
sion-making and therefore, the adoption of Western-based values. 
Sociologist David Riesman expanded on this notion in his book The 
Lonely Crowd. Riesman noticed that a shift from the individualistic 
character of the 19th century to the new idea of a "corporate" 
economy caused a revival in "heroes like the Lone Ranger, James 
Dean, and Beat poets like Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg." Again, 
Riesman shows the modern-day American incorporation of indi- 
vidualistic values of the 19th century, demonstrating the influence 
of this era. 

Funhermore, the devek)pment of voting rights for women in the 
Western frontier shaped the value of legal equalit\' through the 
rest of America. Historian Dee Brown analyzed the initial victon' 
of women's political rights in Wyoming as one that "opened the 
way for women to vote. . . all of which gave hope and inspiration 
to embattled suffragists in the East." Brown makes it clear that the 
materialization of true forms of equality and demtx'racy in the West 
were directly linked to the development of these ideas in the East. 
Additionally, the enfranchisement of women was a progressive 
step towards the civil rights era in the 20th century. The victory for 
women's voting rights in the West therefore led to both women's 
voting rights in the East, and more recently, the civil rights move- 
ment, shaping imponant American values. 
Nevertheless, some historians contend that Turner's perspective on 
the West is invalid because it does not include the \iewpoint of the 
Native Americans. Although this argument has some merit. Native 
American accounts of conflicts with whites indicate that Turner is 
still accurate in presenting the Western frontier as an important fac- 
tor in shaping American values. For instance, many tribes di,scus.sed 
in Bur\- My Heart at Wounded Knee conflicted with the whites in 
how land was viewed - whites viewed the land principally as a way 
of achieving economic prosperity, whereas the Native Americans 
felt a more spiritual connection with the land, hence giving it more 
respect. Cleariy, this idea of placing importance in one's individual- 
istic and economic survival connects strongly with other values of 
Turner's Thesis. 

Ultimately, the validity of Turner's Thesis shows how central the 
Western frontier was to the values of today's America. The Western 
era truly represented a time of change in American culture w hen 
perceptions of modern-day values began to appear, allowing 
America to develop into the powerful and unique country that it 
is today. 

P.S. - 1 give my deepest thanks to the teachers, faculty member, 
and students of Bedford High School. I am so fortunate to have 
shared a pan of my life with such a remarkable group of people, 
and 1 will never forget any of you.

That quote is very true; I just wanted to thank everyone who has

"Oh butterscotch' 

I'm Ke\in Harkins People seem to like me because I am polite 
and 1 am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice 
pair of slacks Years later, a doctor will tell me that I have an I.Q. 
of 48 and am what some people call well you know the rest. .After 
going through old year books and reading the dianks other seniors 
wrote, 1 learned on what to do and what not to do. First, writing 
a long monologue on thanking people can get really lackluster. 
Next, words in bold or words that are in all CAPITALS seem to catch 
people's attention. Finally, I think that some one should build 
the G-Dome, So anyways I think that instead of writing a senior 
thanks, I will write a story-, Um story-, right, here goes; setting 
ouLside between 2 or 3 and there is one cloud in the sky. The cloud 
sort of looked like an Eskimo but not when it started to rain. So 
the mice had to run to a shelter with their cheese bags. Oh snap 
there goes the bungee cord holding your digniry- for reading this 
Running out of words but who can but a price on a good piece of 
literature? Google? Might as well put the word butterscotch in here 
somewhere. Oh yeah maytie I should let the dogs out. woof woof 
wwf. hey w hy has it come down to nothing more dian apathy? Oh 



1 know why, why you ask, it's beause it's going down OK, on 
my thanks now, I guess my parents since they did develop me. 
Props to you mom, dad, brother and sister Then my friends: / 
for doing lots of my stuff, Luke for saying the nght things at the 
right time. Perry, Bill, Neil, Dan, David, Rob, and Taec. Next aD 
groups I'm in like soccer, Boy Scout, marching band (aauaityji 
drum line), and track. So my play list on iTunes is running out 
I should wrap this up soon. I guess that I'll go out in a bang s 
an implosion wouldn't be as loud. Never do anything that you 
regret because what done is done and nothing can be undone, 
a burning van. BIG WORD'

For the past seventeen years Bedford has been our home, now

me how to be the worst kid ever, not being able to control your

underwear while your brother has friends over is cool (you truly 
are so di.sgusting). My cousin, Ryan (Gueege Master), CHU, for 
always doing it to me, going on even' vacation together, handing,

my brother really should get together) and always having major 
SAP. Erin (E-Deminees) - thanks for always wanting to go down 
de river on de raf, going round the outside with dem buffalo girls, 
never worrying about it, hating everything, being a romantic, Los 
Lobsters, and being one of the three. Lara (Da Booty) - thanks

and accents, always being too stressed, sitting on Steph's kitchen 
floor with me to continue "partying" on your birthday, going on 
college visits and throwing Swedish fish, and never saying no when 
I ask you to do that face. Maya - thanks for being so mes.sed up 
on the way to chemistry, telling stories about your dad at parties, 
forgiving me for pulling your car door off and consequently cutting 
your mom's hand, playing "We Run This" evevf time we drive

of everyone during math class including a certain teacher we had 
for freshman and sophomore year, working so hard on history fair

Many people have given me support over the years, starting with 
my Dad. Thanks for giving me so much advice on everything and 
always being there. Michele thanks forgiving me all those life les- 
sons and always seeing the bright side of things. Mom, 1 want you

tell you more things lately and feel that we have grown clo,ser over 
the past few years. Art thanks for staying neutral. Devon, you are 
the greatest combo a girl could have, sister and best friend. I can tell 
you anything, big or little, anti I know you will keep it to yourself 
and you give the best advice. I have to do this one last time and 
bring it up but. . . "OH BOY OH m\ OH BOY!", oh yeah and how 
can we forget how the no-smile laugh started . . . Cheerio, we have 
been through a lot, and are really glad that we did. You are one of 
my bestest friends in the whole wide worki and always keep me 
laughing with your evolving ■ ghetto " talk of "YO TL'RN THAT SHIT 
UP!!"" Ape Face, we have been strong friends through all these years, 
you have always been there for me and are glad that we have had 
such good limes. Blair, I am very proud that you have turned into a 



girl since we all started hanging out. You taught me some valuable 
lessons of being tough, and have also protected me. I mean come 
on that"s why we are friends!! Eliza, we have been friends since 
forever, and I hope it stays that way. I am very grateful that we were 
there for each other during all of the hard times when we needed 
to get away. My favorite thing was walking to BF with you in the 
summers. Pookies, one of the best summers I had was when we 
hung out like everyday on the common and did the most random 
things. "Soccer girls"', I am very glad that we all became friends 
this year, (and I am still very happy that we won the bet Amanda!) 
Alex, Zach, Luke, you are the best brothers an older sister could ask 
for. You guys always help me out with car stuff and bugs, which 1 
appreciate a lot. Taylor, Kentlall, Carson, I have always wished that 
I had sisters and then I got the best ones in the world! I am really

DAVE THORSEN 

"\X'hy would 1 give you a dollar?" - Tom 
"Come on even body! VCe're going to America!" 
First of all, I would like to thank my family. Mom - Vl'hether it was 
reading over my papers the night Ijefore the\' were due. folding 
my laundr\-, or staging with me in the hospital for almost four clays 
straight, you were always there for me. anil I am forever grateful 
for that. Dad - Be it math homework, scouts, or life in general, 
you were always there to lend a helping hand and make sure 1 
gave it my all Even now. your jokes in public still make me laugh 
and walk into the ne.vi r(K)m out of embarrAssmeni. but hey that's 
what dails are for. right? Mike - Froin "playing" the ilrums to- 
gether, to playing hunters anil rabbii.s when we were little. 1 have 
always respected and loved you. even though 1 haven't alwa>'s 
showed it. You always knew what to say to put a smile on my fece, 
and 1 will truly miss that in college. I'm here for you kid. never 
forget that. Tom - 1 still remember the day in pre-.sch(X)l that we 
met on the playground. Since then, we've been partners in crime; 
the expeditions at the "Nature Sch(X)l " especially " against" Ana 
our countless make-money-quick jobs by doing ph^^i^al labor we 
couldn't actually do ( "miKlem day" lumberjacks) from when we 
were little, the nc-ar death experience after paintball (should have 
just given that kid a dollar), and the "three stiH)ges" in swim team. 
You've been a true frienil and 1 hope it lasts forever. Nick - 1 can 
still remember the Mondays after school when we would go to 
\ i)ur house, do homework and play hix key with your brother 
in the ba.sement. We twth enjoy the same things; from ta.stes in 
music, to what ski trails to lake, to simply what movie to watch 
You've been a true friend to me and 1 thank you for that. .Mark 
- "what is you . . . ? " \ ou're the other third of the three stix)ges anil 
I can truly say I have never h;iil more fun while doing something

over. Neil - 1 would like to thank you for twisting the ropes to 
Pern 's launcher and causing the golf ball to shix)t me in the chest 
then proceeding to laugh while 1 rolled around on the ground. 1 
have to admit, that was the sickest welt 1 have e\er seen. That slur- 
pee hght was .WSO.ME. Carl - You always had ide'as to do, even if 
they weren't possible. Jamming at Luke's hou.se was so much fun; 
we have to play with Tony sometime tixi. Pern* - Thanks for per- 
manently borrowing the balkxin launcher from camp. That thing 
is incredible. You were also the brain child behind the donuts. 
Ama/ing. Those v\ill make great stories to tell my kids when they 
are in high school. Tony G. -I c"an't start to tell you how much 



better I have become since I started playing snare with you. You

Although it is clear to me who I need to thank for making my 18 
years a successful learning experience in school and outside of 
school, it is extremely difficult to fit all those who have inspired me 
in their own ways. 

My Great-Grandfather came to this country along with many 
other immigrants searching for the American dream. We say they 
were searching for the American dream, however they knew they_ 
would never see the dream, and probably questioned even if their 
children would see that dream, but yet they still made the sacrifices 
to lay the first brick in building a new life. So niy first thanks g(x;s 
to all Immigrants like my Great-grandfather who blindly created this 
uniquely cultural countiy. 

Dad, I can confidently say that you and 1 have one of the most 
unique relationships a father and son can have. We have been 
best buds since I was able to walk and to this day we still refer to 
one another as buddies and I know you fear one day that may 
fade. However it wont, because it is true, you are my best friend, 
you understand everything 1 do, almost more than I do. When I 
was younger I got into trouble for things that I didn't even do yet. 
Every time I mess up I pray that you tlon'i come, but when you 
come I pray you don't go. I know the majority of kids my age, hide 
everything from their parents, they re basically a totally different 
person in their parents perspective and I often wonder what m\' life 
would be like if 1 ever had to lie that much to my parents, so I thank 
you for being so cool . I am inspired by the long antl imneces,sar\' 
hours you put into work to give us the little extras while simultane- 
ously thriving Grandpa s ilreams to a level he .said "1 couldn't dream 
of this success in my most wildest dreams," 
Mom, thank you for bailing me out so many times, I love haNing 
you in the school and not just for when I forget my b(H)ks. my 
lunch money etc; Yet with a handful of screaming preschool 
children you still find time to talk to me. 
1 wouldn't know how to survive if my siblings we re not as cool as 
you guys are. Dave, you and I have always had a great relationship 
through out the years, we have shared the .same qualities ever 
sense we were younger. It has been a great experience working 
with you, I have learned a lot about the retail end of the family basi- 
ness. Your knowledge in sales inipre,s.ses me ,so much; I still can't 
fathom the accomplishments \'ou have made at such a young age, I 
wish you the best of luck in the future. 
Rob, you and I don't consider each other brothers, bei-au.sc we are 
friends, I was too immature to undersianil how lucky I was to haw 
a brother as an upper ckussman. I wish I listeneil to the warnings 
you gave me when I was a freshman. At the time, although you re- 
peaieilly tried to tell me \ou weren't lecturing me, I w.is con\inceil 
that's exactly what you were doing. Now I unilersiand what uiu 
were trying lo say I am glad that you ;ire ha\ ing a blxst in college 
and also learning, ih;it shows me thai I should In- able to do both as 
well. I hanks for e\en thing 

Danielle, il is so cih)I having you in my ,schu)l. I think it is so cix)l 
that we also chill omside of schinil. Uke I said I know friends that 
wouki rather jimtp off ;i bridge Motv ihev hang with their s>Wians 
es|X'cially sister. I nixtl to thank ytiu lor w-akmg me up in the 
moniing. 

Outside of my family I ncal to thank thuse who haw uLmi insplreil 
me in a certain way. The O'Brien's, \t)u guw haw to he the omlcit

people I have ever met. Pat (Mr. happy) O'Brien, Pat I don't know 
how you are so boring and lazy but yet .so chili. You always look for 
the negative rather then the positive you know exactly how to piss 
anyone off but its funny. Chris thanks for always beating the crap 
out of [)at for nie. Cheryl, you have always been a second mom 
to me and 1 could never repay you for the things you have done. 
Richie (Clark Grizwald) O'Brien, Rich I am finally admitting that 1 
have so much more fun hanging out with you then pat. "Take it 
easy Rust" 

Steph, we have had so much fun together, you always find a 
way to put me in a good mood I thank you for being so cool and 
understanding. Matt (Turkey) I know you hate bean so 1 called you 
turkey. Matt, we have had so many good times even though Mr. 
Happy wasn't around. Hahaha, Wilson you and I have been friends 
for so long and you're still a good friend man. Marcus we have
